LEBANON, Ind. (WISH) — A woman is asking for help after she lost her home and husband in a fire intentionally sparked by her cousin.

Neighbors say Angie Dickerson is sleeping in a tent in front of her burned mobile home in Lebanon because she has nowhere to go.

Dickerson’s cousin Tina Hoover is charged with arson and murder.

Back on May 21, detectives say Hoover set a couch on fire inside Dickerson’s mobile home because she wanted attention and revenge.

Dickerson’s husband was unable to escape a back bedroom and died from smoke inhalation.
